Ah yes the famous "glitter f*rt," I remember that tweet >.< Joking aside, the whole effort put into building this new particle system is astounding! And it'll be a universal in-house solution regardless of platform, independent from the "Red vs Green"! Looking forward to going over my entire arsenal to see how things have changed :satisfied:

Also, Steve said the sacrifice would be the first to use the new particle system.

So, is this limited to visuals only, or can it be used for other purposes?  Might theoretically be useful for more interesting hit detection on the Ignis, for example.

The next Mainline update (this May) 

 This new GPU Particle system will be less RAM intensive,

Sacrifice quest!!!

Yes... ram memory is my biggest issue. I'm crossing my fingers that this change won't cause another Harrow Crisis.

When?
We expect to have Mainline with GPU Particles on PC mid-May! Consoles can expect GPU Particles soon after PC.

Huh do we have hinty hint here for a Sacrifice release window? :3

(wishful thinking ^^ and no, please don't rush it, have it "bake in the oven" as long as it has to)

It's finally time I end up turning them off then. I still remember the day I enabled PhysX for the first time on December 2013 after I bought a new PC only because of Warframe. Man it's been a long ride.

@[DE]Rebecca, I've been watching @[DE]Steve on Twitter fiddling with them, and I believe this video will give you quite the flashback. It's in the spoiler so my post doesn't clutter the forum.

Spoiler

...In my opinion, a new wave of trailer cinematics should be created, but trying to stay close to these older ones, but that can come after Sacrifice, or even Venus.

That said, I am eagerly looking forward to a cosmetic set made purely from these new particles.

Steve said they would come with The Sacrifice, so I think it might be safe to hype ourselves JUST a little bit.

Any time Steve talks about this I get really excited as it's literally a game changer to me. The artists of this game are very talented and this type of thing can be so powerful in the hands of creative and talented artists. ❤️ it!
